The San Francisco 49ers dropped their Week 2 matchup versus the Seattle Seahawks by a score of 12-9. We break down all that went right and wrong for the Niners in this NFC West showdown.
Well, on one hand, the San Francisco 49ers actually had a lead in the fourth quarter on the road versus the Seattle Seahawks.
That’s one of a few positive takeaways from the Niners’ 12-9 loss up north versus their division rivals. Head coach Kyle Shanahan’s offense has yet to score a touchdown over two games now, and the 49ers sit at 0-2 heading into a short week.
As we do each week, we’ll break down the good, bad and ugly from this contest.
Defensively, there’s a lot of good. It wasn’t perfect, and San Francisco surely missed its promising rookie linebacker, Reuben Foster, who is out with an ankle injury. But it’s important to note Seattle is a team many pundits think can make it to the Super Bowl this season.
Going on the road and holding the Seahawks to just 12 points is a bit of an accomplishment, especially when the Niners offense was hardly functioning at all.
Yet there’s plenty of bad and ugly, which we also have to break down.
Before we do that, though, let’s look at what went right for San Francisco in Week 2.
